Your Next Best Friend: Roda


Okay, my sister’s been adopted so I’ve got to get into high gear. My name is Roda, and like her, I’m an American foxhound, 1½ years old, around 55 pounds. I’m more statuesque than my sister, and also, like her, am very happy and social and love playing with other dogs. She and I flunked out of foxhunting and figured the next life stage would involve sunning ourselves and lying in our dog beds in homes with air conditioning. You got all those things at your place?

This past week three of my canine colleagues were joined with new owners. The Rappahannock Animal Welfare League (RAWL), 160 Weaver Rd., Amissville, is open 8 to 1 daily. Call 540-937-3283 or visit
